UNLOVEABLE

Oh ...
I know I'm unloveable
You don't have to tell me
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours
Oh ...

I know I'm unloveable
You don't have to tell me
Oh, message received
Loud and clear
Loud and clear
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours

I know I'm unloveable
You don't have to tell me
For message received
Loud and clear
Loud and clear
Message received
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours

I wear Black on the outside
'Cause Black is how I feel on the inside
I wear Black on the outside
'Cause Black is how I feel on the inside

And if I seem a little strange
Well, that's because I am
If I seem a little strange
That's because I am

But I know that you would like me
If only you could see me
If only you could meet me

Oh ...
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours
Mmm ...
Oh ...


A cyclic music provides a rich backing for Morrissey's crooning vocal on this song. His lyrical willingness to prostitute himself for some unnamed love is framed by his frank admission "I don't have much in my life".
Morrissey once again provides an accurate portrayal by revealing the arrogance hidden behind the resigned statement "I know I'm unloveable" as the protagonist is sure that the love would like him - if only they could meet him.
